Settling into fall

Our little family is settling right into the fall season--except it's hotter than stink here in Mt. P!! Looking forward to some cooler weather!!
Allie Grace is loving her new class at school. Her teachers are awesome and so sweet- hope some rubs off on AG!! JK- 3 1/2 is so much fun! She really likes learning her letters of the week and has been wanting to know what everything starts with. She writes her name and and is always writing letters down.
Saylor is moving all over and curious about everything at 14 months- opening doors, drawers, and such. She says Hi to everyone and Bye too. She has this little bashful smile that is so contagious and is such a lovey little thing. This age cracks me up- or at least she does. She keeps us laughing around here! She loves to dance and play with dolls!
Lots to look forward to with all the holidays coming up. AG is super excited about being Hannah Montana this year for Halloween- she has the part down pat. Still need to find something for Saylor!
For Chad and I-working and keeping up with our 2 girls!! I'm looking forward to my Oct trip to NYC, courtesy of Nana!! Also, Chad and I are excited about our Feb 2010 ski trip to Breckenridge with Meg and Daniel!! Lots of fun ahead!!
Love this time of year, Tanya

Fun times with Aunt Meggy!!

We had such a great time with Aunt Meggy here!! It's always so much fun when she comes. I wish she lived here and could see her everyday. Our week visits twice a year just isn't enough but am very thankful for the time we do get to spend. This past time, we did it all. We first went to GA and visited with Grandma and family. Same 'ole in Barnesville, nothings changed. We actually almost managed not to eat up at The Grill, but we did right before we headed home!! We went to the GA Aquarium, which in my eyes- was the coolest experience ever. I will definitely be going back. We took our Grandma, wheelchair and all and had an exhausting blast!! We headed over to the coke museum and loved trying all the different cokes from all over the world. Allie Grace even got a kick out of testing all the drinks. After that we went and had dinner with Tiffany at the CNN building where she works. What a big day! Megan and I, when we got back to Mt P, went to movies twice and took the girls to the pool and beach. We of course did a little shopping too! Megan and I planned a ski trip in Feb, so very excited about that- Chad too. Can't wait for many more fun memories with Aunt Meggy. We need to find her and Uncle Danny a job over here in Mt. P--going to look now:)
Love you Megan, you're the best!! Tanya

Summer Time Fun!!

So far this summer we have been enjoying the beach, pool, No Limits, The Aquarium, and VBS in Raleigh with Meme!! It's been so much fun! Allie Grace has amazed us with how good of a swimmer she is. Just 2 weeks ago, she hardly put her head under and wanted us to catch her when she jumped in. Now she is swimming under to us and jumping off the pool all by herself!! We have had one swim lesson, with 2 more to go!! Saylor is taking a few steps and is about to take off walking. She gets up, takes a step or two--then gets back to crawl which is way faster for her! She loves playing with her Little People and plays so well by herself. She is a big eater and loves food. Allie Grace is now in a big girl bed and seems to be liking it, we still find her coming into our room sometimes...b/c she's scared of the thunder and lightning. I have to admit, we have had a lot of terrible/scarey storms lately!! Well, next big thing is 4th of July which we will be staying right here in Mt. P for and then Saylor's 1st birthday party at the beach- can't believe my baby will be 1.
Looking forward to more summer time fun.
Loving Summer, Tanya

Memorial Weekend

Memorial Weekend is going on right now as I write. We are enjoying our time in Wilmington with my mom and family. Yesterday we went to the beach and had a blast. Not too many people there but today when we go, there will probably be tons! Saylor loved the beach and crawled all around--mostly looking for shells to eat!! Pretty soon she will be running around- I'd say in month, she'll be walking. Allie Grace loved playing in the gullies and met some friends to play with. The water was a tad cold, so we just stayed with her in the gullies. They both looked so cute in their matching bathing suits Aunt Meggy sent!! We are headed back to the beach today- so more to come and with pics!! Oh- and after the beach yesterday, I went on a long bike ride "by myself" and saw a bunny and found a lost dog - Tanya saved the day!! When AG woke up from her nap, I took her on a bike ride and showed her the bunny too- she loved seeing Cottontail--and I think its the same one we saw at Easter!! Off to get ready for beach day #2- will be back to continue!!
Beach day #2 was just as fun!! That evening we enjoyed pizza with SaSa out by the pool!!

In Memory of our Veteran's, Tanya

Busy Busy Week!

Ok so the last few weeks have bee so busy but really lots of fun!! It started with Allie Grace spring break taking her to Nana and Papa's for the week. She enjoyed her time with them "all by herself" and really loved going to the Ripleys' Aquirium and seeing the sharks that swam above her head in the tank!! Then the week went on with Chad, Saylor and I going to get AG Thurs night and going to church with The Cross' and hearing Nana play the bells. Nana was great but the girls were very restless and entertained us during the service--remind me never to take children into church again!! Then Friday we headed to Wilmington to see Meme and Papa Harry. We enjoyed our time visiting with cousins and seeing SaSa. Went to an Easter Egg Hunt Sat and saw a big pretend bunny that AG almost gave hug- said she would next time!! We also saw a real bunny that ran by too- that was neat and unexpected!! Our weekend continued on and we got back to Mt P then turned around and went to Santee Lake for 2 nights to see Nana and Papa again!! AG caught her 1st fish!! We enjoyed our time relaxing amongst SC wildlife!! We are finally home and re- cooping from 2 weeks of fun filled times!! The girls are pooped, off schedule but have many priceless memories!!
